Hi there. Yeah, thought of a way because I hate any protruding material/element on this very well-thought piece/machine and it is very simple and budget friendly. I used the supplied servo holder (not the floating) to hold the 3.2mm carbon fiber rod with the AT06. I then mount it using the pre-holed slots near the steering rack on the C01EX- my favorite asphalt chassis.
If one will ask if the rod is touching the drive shaft upon vibrations, the answer is no (well based on my testings). The carbon fiber rod is so stiff that it won't reached nor touch the drive shaft upon normal driving conditions. If still doubting about the flexing of the tube, one can reduce the length of the rod to reduce the displacement of the oscillation.
My favorite A700 is neater than before. Hope this helps.
I reckon that Oleg's designing skills are the best and second to none. Evidently, some parts of the car can be re-positioned for possible new use.
